Real Madrid’s Bernabeu to host all-Argentine Copa Libertadores final

Chaos for River-Boca Two Bernabeus could be filled

With the game now rescheduled to be played in Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday, December 9, the expected punishment handed down to River Plate has been swift, and firm.

However, that was thrown out by the Disciplinary Tribunal on Thursday, with River forced to play two CONMEBOL-organised games behind closed doors and fined.

"The decision of the administration is that this game will be played with fans of both teams in Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium", CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominguez said, adding that the game would be played at 8:30 p.m. local time (2:30 p.m. ET).

Boca appealed to CONMEBOL's independent disciplinary committee to be awarded the trophy and have River expelled from the competition, but that was also rejected on Thursday.

Originally scheduled for last weekend at River's Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires, it was postponed after some Boca players were injured when their team bus came under attack from their arch rivals' fans throwing projectiles.

Paris, which has two major football stadiums in the Parc des Princes and Stade de France, had been mooted as an alternative to Madrid.

"This is the moment to show the world that in football, the good guys always win".

The fixture had been poised to be the biggest club match in the 127-year history of Argentine football, and the first leg ended 2-2.

Earlier, Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said his country would be willing to host the game.

As the chaotic mess that is this season's Copa Libertadores final continues to unravel, we can at least say there has been some progress in developments.

Qatar had been the favourites along with Asuncion in Paraguay, while the Mayor of Genoa confirmed he was "working on the possibility of bringing River Plate-Boca Juniors" to Marassi.

They have won the Copa Libertadores nine times between them.
